Talk about out of control. 🤦‍♂️

 

Re: P&O mass redundancy

 

I spotted a NHS Covid test van which was running its engine while parked i.e. whole duration of the testing hours, I told them they were breaking the law and one of the guy said emergency vehicles are above the law and I told him that it wasn't an emergency van. As I walked out, black female & male staff laughed. I will be laughing about you when you are on your death bed simply because you had your vaxx retard. You see why I can now happily walk pass if anyone is on the floor......

 

 

And today..... I saw a huge lit advertisement for police which was on the back of a small truck and it was parked but had its engine on. Do you see irony here? It is breaking the law to advertise the police force. 🤦‍♂️

The heart-rending accounts of those struggling to pay rent, energy bills and everyday costs expose the human tragedies behind the economic whirlwind facing families across the country.

 

Will the punchline to the reset be that people believe they demanded it themselves.....

'Green' power plant that burns wood pellets instead of coal gets £2m a DAY in subsidies, energy firm's report shows

  • Power stations burning wood receive equivalent of £2million  a day in subsidies
  • The huge amount shown in energy firm Drax’s annual report has been blasted
  • Critics say burning wood is not renewable due to time it takes for trees to regrow

By Colin Fernandez Environment Correspondent For The Daily Mail

Published: 23:17 GMT, 24 March 2022 | Updated: 23:20 GMT, 24 March 2022

A power station that burns wood instead of coal receives the equivalent of more than £2million a day in public subsidies, despite doubts over the environmental benefits. 

The huge amount, revealed in energy firm Drax’s annual report, has been blasted as an ‘extraordinary’ payment to burn forests. 

The firm received £893million in 2021 – equivalent to adding £11.60 a year to every household’s fuel bill – for burning renewable biomass pellets instead of fossil fuels. 

Critics say that burning wood is not truly renewable because of the time it takes for trees to regrow, while the greenhouse gas stays in the atmosphere adding to global warming

Last year the power station – which is Britain’s biggest carbon emitter – burnt the equivalent of around 29million trees.

As usual, the Monarchy misjudged the mood of the commoners, when they thought a photo shoot of hysterical Kate and bald Billy living their best life in the Caribbean, would woo our despondent nation.

 

Kate-Middleton-and-Prince-William-their-

 

It flopped!

 

After sight-seeing, scuba-diving and the obligatory dancing with ‘natives’ Kate and Billy patronized Bob Marley, met an actual Rasta and greeted eager ‘picaninnies’ through a wire mesh fence, who hoped to ‘touch’ the privileged couple, whose wealth was derived from the rape and pillage of the British commonwealth.

The MSM says, “Their arrival in Jamaica was met by protesters demanding reparations for the British monarchy's enslavement of their people thousands of years ago.”

 

Thousands of years ago?

 

Someone needs a history lesson.

 

Slavery was finally abolished 174 years ago and was immediately followed by the brutal colonisation of Africa in the 1900’s.

 

The repercussions for the “third world” were death or perpetual servitude, displacement, poverty and war, ongoing....

 

"Prince William and Kate Middleton face more problems with their Bahamas tour as they will again be asked to make a formal apology and address reparations."

 

Meanwhile, the press went into damage-control with sweet pictures of the dear old Queen at a tea party, to remind the public how “benign” the Saxe-Coburg & Gotha’s are…. Cough!

Don't laugh my British friends... you are paying for their trip with your tax dollars. If you don't like it, stop paying their bills.

Reparations must be addressed to Lord Rothschild, Waddeson Manor, England and the Moses Montefiore descendents. But of course they won't. They benefitted financially as per usual from compound interest for 180 years at the expense of the British taxpayer

 

"On 3 August 1835, somewhere in the City of London, two of Europe’s most famous bankers came to an agreement with the chancellor of the exchequer. Two years earlier, the British government had passed the Slavery Abolition Act, which outlawed slavery in most parts of the empire. Now it was taking out one of the largest loans in history, to finance the slave compensation package required by the 1833 act. Nathan Mayer Rothschild and his brother-in-law Moses Montefiore agreed to loan the British government £15m, with the government adding an additional £5m later. The total sum represented 40% of the government’s yearly income in those days, equivalent to some £300bn today.

 

Capture-d%E2%80%99e%CC%81cran-2021-02-02

 

 

One might expect this so-called “slave compensation” to have gone to the freed slaves to redress the injustices they suffered. Instead, the money went exclusively to the owners of slaves, who were being compensated for the loss of what had, until then, been considered their property.

 

Not a single shilling of reparation, nor a single word of apology, has ever been granted by the British state to the people it enslaved, or their descendants.

 

Today, 1835 feels so long ago; so far away. But if you are a British taxpayer, what happened in that quiet room affects you directly.

 

Your taxes were used to pay off the loan, and the payments only ended in 2015. Generations of Britons have been implicated in a legacy of financial support for one of the world’s most egregious crimes against humanity.The fact that you, and your parents, and their parents in turn, may have been paying for a huge slave-owner compensation package from the 1830s only came to public attention last month. The revelation came on 9 February, in the form of a tweet by HM Treasury: “Here’s today’s surprising #FridayFact. Millions of you have helped end the slave trade through your taxes. Did you know? In 1833, Britain used £20 million, 40% of its national budget, to buy freedom for all slaves in the Empire. The amount of money borrowed for the Slavery Abolition Act was so large that it wasn’t paid off until 2015. Which means that living British citizens helped pay to end the slave trade.”

What an obnoxious clown well done Chris keeping composure 

 

Ha ha what a bellend Smith is. All his films are shite, as was his music career. A narcissistic prick who's so far down the illuminati arse hole, that he can assault a man in front of a global audience (also consisting of cunts) and not get removed by security, arrested or fuck all. A few minutes later, the self absorbed talentless shit house, wins an oscar and claims during part of his hack written speech, that he wants to be 'a vessel of love'. Then all the pedos in attendance give him a standing ovation, I shit you not. Hollywood, ladies and gentlemen.

It wouldn't even be a shock if this was all pre-planned like most things are, as a way to drum up interest for the waning awards show. In reality Smith and his dysfunctional family should be done, but he'll no doubt be back with a shite film that I'll never watch.

I'm calling it now....staged.

That's what I thought to.

Look at the way he reacts to the punch, he knows it's coming imo.

Natural human reaction is to flinch or put your hands up, not just stand there with a daft smile all over your chevy chase.

There was alot of force behind that slap

A well built male, can strike a slap harder then most average males can punch.

Just saying for all those fake people.

He put alot of force into that.

I wonder what hollywood has to say now about toxic masculinity?

 

There was alot of force behind that slap.

 

Obviously he did not intend to punch him out on stage, but clearly knew slapping him, would make a point.

 

People do not appreciate a well muscled man, can slap harder then most males can punch.

Did Chris know Will's wife had a medical condition, or was he was making fun of what he thought was arbitrary stylistic choice?

Right now, I'm sure women are swooning over Smith protecting his wife's honour, but take the romance out of this bullshit. Slapping a comedian for a misunderstanding? What an impulsive and stupid fool.

To be fair it looked more like a punch than a slap, force-wise.
